Using the sucrose hemolysis reaction of Hartmann and Jenkins as a basic model, the low ionic strength reaction (LISR) of human blood was studied to determine serum Ig [immunoglobulin] uptake by RBC [red blood cells] with saline elution and 125I-IgG uptake, and complement fixation (CF) to RCB with lysis of PNH [paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria] cells and C3/C4 antiglobulin hemagglutination (AH) of normal cells. The saline eluates contained IgG and IgM and with traces of IgA. Their pH optima for the uptake by RBC were 6.0 .+-. 0.5, 5.5 .+-. 0.5 and approximately 5.0, respectively. The ratio of bound IgG to IgM was linearly related to the uptake pH. C4 AH and lysis were optimum at pH 6.0-7.5, whereas the maximum C3 AH was at pH 6.0 .+-. 0.5. The LISR performed at a constant pH (6.1 .+-. 0.1) showed that an increasing concentration of neuraminidase (VCN) used in pretreatment of RCB was associated with a decrease in IgG uptake and CF activity. A maximum VCN effect reduced the Ig uptake to approximately 20% of normal and abolished almost all the CF activity. An impaired LISR to various degrees was also observed with RBC pretreated with ficin, papain, bromelin, trypsin or protamine, and RCB from 2 individuals of En(a-) type. Preincubation of serum at LIS with and without RBC resulted in, respectively, a complete and partial consumption of C in the fluid phase. The latter was not enhanced or inhibited by the addition of VCN-treated RBC for preincubation. In the LISR the Ig uptake by RBC is an electrostatic interaction of the oppositely charged RBC and Ig and the CF to RBC results from C activation by the cell-bound IgG and IgM. A pH-dependent inactivation of the cell-bound C3 in the LISR was demonstrated.

Conditional on perforin-dependent delivery to the nucleus of target cells, the cytolytic granule serine protease granzyme B (GrB) plays a central role in eliciting the nuclear events of apoptosis, as shown by the fact that reducing GrB nuclear ent...
